Welcome to Word Art Wednesday! This week's scripture challenge and our "anything goes" design challenge will make creating a project for a chance to win some wonderful prizes from our sponsors.
Yet, it is not only the wealthy who should be charitable. Charity comes from a selfless heart and even those with very little in material wealth can be charitable. Being helpful, thoughtful and kind doesn't depend on one's bank account. In fact, some of the most selfless acts of giving can't be purchased with money or doled out from the wallet. They come from the heart.
Sometimes it is in our smallest acts of kindness that we bless others the most. The widow's mite, given with a selfless heart was worth more to Jesus than a treasure trove from someone who's heart was closed.
Just think of all the kind and thoughtful acts of charity that don't require any money...I can think of a ton. And each would bless the neighbor, the widow down the street, the lonely resident at the nursing home, the bullied child next door....the list goes on. Sometimes the most precious thing we can give another person is a hug, a kind word, a helping hand, or just our time. I know I could be so much more charitable in ways that would bless others, fill their hearts with the love of Christ and point them to a Savior who provides for their eternal life. Wouldn't it be a fun challenge to add to our day or week more charitable acts?
Come to our challenge blog and play along with this week's challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by!
